About this Moody 27


Remarks :

Honey Bee is a very good example of the popular Moody 27. This boat was the predecessor of the Moody 28 and was brought about by the design of Bill Dixon and the build quality of Moody Yachts. Well built and sea kindly this yacht offers stability and comfort for those wishing to downsize or those wishing to dip their toe in boat ownership for the first time.
Large safe cockpit with good locker storage, easy access side decks allowing safe access around the decks and large capacity anchor locker.  Heavy layup hull with shoal draft fin keel giving a ballast ratio of over 44% give her a robust feel. Hull is finished in white gel coat with contrasting dark navy band giving the yacht a sleek look.
Below decks is warm and welcoming thanks to the wood finish to the floor and bulkheads. Fabrics have been upgraded to a lovely cream colour in 2017. The interior woodwork has been fully sanded back and varnished to a very high standard. Vessel can sleep 5 with ease and has a good sized galley featuring gas fuelled Flavel oven with 2-burner hob and grill, top loading ice box for perishables and sink with manual fresh water. Boat kept warm and dry thanks to Eberspacher cabin heating. 
Deck stepped aluminium spars with boom mounted mainsail with new sail cover. Roller furling headsail and spinnaker with pole. All canvas work including sprayhood upgraded in 2016.
